Hi !

Hi, Have been reading the forum for awhile and learned a lot. I am a retired TV repairman and helped people get their pictures looking right for many years. Now I am scanning the family photo album and trying to get them to look right.

Great forum and thanks for already answering many of my questions !

Hi Steve Welcome aboard.
Your comments about getting the picture right on a TV reminds me of a friend who started TV repair decades ago with analog TVs. This may predate your work yet thought you might appreciate.
He had one elderly women as a customer that could not be satisfied with his best adjustments on her TV. My friend was pretty frustrated with the situation yet had an "aha" moment. He unlocked the horizontal sync and slowly rolled the picture image and asked her to pick the one she wanted. After about 10 frames going by she said "That One!". He asked her if she was sure and she said she was. He locked the horizontal sync and the customer and he left with a smile on their faces. First instance I heard of "the customer is always right"

Re: Hi !

I clipped this cartoon from a magazine years ago; it still gives me a good laugh.
